I would hope none

Reduce funding for 5 or 6 years and wait for better days.

Find kids who want to play for the sake of playing their sport. Would most likely be a men's sport IMO.

Unfortunately wrestling would probably be the one. UVA alum as a coach, perhaps willing to ride the wave for the sake of UVA. Wrestling as a sport is going to be on life support at many schools so we'd be following the trend. Lots of tough wrestlers out there who just need a mat. Lacrosse might be another sport with very little funding (men and women), rely only on their donors and endowments. Wealthy parents footing more tuition bills.
